Rocky Mountain Revival
About This Show
Rocky Mountain Revival is an Audio Art Journal. What does that mean? We are a haven for readers, writers, singers, storytellers, audio artists, listeners and dreamers; an oasis for story-thirsty wanderers; an island of freedom in an ocean of thought tyranny surrounded by sharks that feed on the imagination. And no, we are not exaggerating. We support all arts, though we have a focus on literature and music. Generally speaking, each episode features a special musical guest and short story, though we reserve all rights to deviate from that formula whenever we deem necessary.

50: Peaceful Warriors
“Peaceful Warriors” by Tanya Rodrigue. This narrative audio journalism piece—part documentary/part personal narrative—tells a story of the Jan. 21st Women's March. The story weaves together narration, family stories, media clips, and interviews/conversations with protestors at the sister marches in Chicago, DC, London, Toronto and Denver. Perhaps more importantly, it tells a story about protests—how they work to foster human connection and evoke intense emotions that drive people to action. Tanya Rodrigue is an English professor at Salem State University and teaches writing and rhetoric. She lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her husband, Pete, and her son, Aedan. http://tanyarodrigue.com Twitter @TKrisR

A local feel, yet nationally produced with bands and writers from across the country.

This show is a fantastic example of a cool idea that gets executed well. The show manages to feel both professional but personal at the same time. Keep up the good work and I look forward to future episodes.
